The Almighty Lobbying Panjamdrum rolls on.
As much as £500,000 may been spent to persuade the country that the Exclusive Brethren deserves Charity Status. Under the rules that do not qualify. They have intepreted this rejection as an attack on their cult and on, amazingly, Christianity. This is inventive spin but it has convinced some gullible MPs seeking to find prejudice where it does not exists. The Exclusives are trying to rebrand themselves as 'Christian Brethren.'
Below is very reasonable contribtion to the correspendence of my website. The letter is calm, moderate and informative. If you are interested in learning more follow the links.

“I presume the name of Hales Exclusive Brethren has been made up by persons who have a personal axe to grind. I can’t find this anywhere on their website”
Brian – Please stop trying to play the “victim”, its wearing thin. What is happening here is the “Truth” is being exposed and the Exclusive Brethren don’t like being unmasked !!
Brian – As you well know yourself, the current website only went live on the internet on the 8th of Nov 2012. It is a new website which fails to tell the truth about who the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church really are !
Brian – Why is there no mention at all of the 1848 Bethesda division in the Plymouth Brethren which resulted in two separate groups being formed which were very individual and distinctive and very different in doctrinal practice. These two groups were the “Open Brethren” and the “Exclusive Brethren” - why is this not mentioned ??
Brian – You well know that information is readily available on the internet about the history of the Plymouth Brethren and the Divisions within it. As just “One” example, look at the following website which discuses JN Darby whom you say you follow.
Brian – go onto this website and learn more about who Darby was and his life and doctrines. Look at the page detailing “Difficulties” and learn about the “Letter Of The Ten” and the “Division” in the Plymouth Brethren and the creation of the Exclusive movement. Why is this not mentioned on the new (Nov 8th 2012) Plymouth Brethren Christian Church website ??
Brian – Why was the old website changed ? What was wrong with it ?, was it too “honest” about who the Exclusive Brethren are ?. The site used to be –
This was much clearer about who you where and what you actually stood for and practiced. It even detailed previous leaders of the Exclusive Brethren, previous universal leaders or “men of God” such as FE Raven, James Taylor Senior, James Taylor Junior, JH Symington, JS Hales and Bruce Hales the current leader.
Fortunately the old website I still available on the following link –
Brian – No one has a “personal axe to grind” is simply about telling the “TRUTH”, which all Christians are supposed to do, are they not ??
